Perimenopause and Menopause
Going through the menopause is a natural part of the aging process for women. Menopause is defined as the point when a woman no longer has menstrual periods, but the phase leading up to this point, perimenopause, can start months and quite often years before this point.  It normally happens between the ages of 45 and 55 years, but can aslo be brought on early by some medical treatments or surgery, such as ovary removal.

During this time women experience hormonal changes and a decline in oestrogen levels. Most woman will experience a range of menopausal symptoms that may even continue for some time post-menopause.

Some of these symptoms can be quite severe and have a significant impact on everyday life.  It can feel very overwhelming as we lose that sense of control over our bodies.  We can start to lose our confidence and feel less able to cope with daily life.

Most women do not experience all the associated symptoms of menopause, but with around 80% of women experiencing hot flushes and sweats alone, most face some disruption in their life.

The good news is that there is a growing body of evidence that hypnotherapy can help to relieve some of these symptoms.

Hypnotherapy has been shown to reduce the frequency and intensity of hot flushes in addition to helping with anxiety and substantially improving the quality of sleep. In fact, hypnosis has been shown to reduce hot flushes and night sweats by up to 74%, showing it to be as effective as HRT in managing these symptoms (Elkins G., Fisher W.I., Johnson A.K., et al (2012) Clinical hypnosis in the treatment of postmenopausal hot flashes.)

The NHS also recommends reducing stress levels and doing relaxing activities as a way to help with mood changes, low mood, anxiety, hot flushes and sweats.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that can help by reducing levels of stress and anxiety, reduce the extent of hot flushes and help you regain confidence and that sense of self.
